Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


While we’re waiting for the Maryland Court of Special Appeals to rule in Aaron Walker’s appeal in the Walker v. Kimberlin, et al. lawsuit, I’ve been recycling Team Kimberlin related post on most days. The recycled post are generally from the same date one, two, three, four, five, or six years before. Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of the first court hearing in matters related to the Kimberlins’ marital difficulties, and I choose to run a different post. Hogewash! isn’t a checkout aisle tabloid, and I avoid such topics unless they are absolutely necessary to properly tell a story about something else. Today’s recycled post from 10 July, 2013, mentions the Kimberlins’ difficulties tangentially.

It has been noised about on the Interwebs that I celebrate adultery or that this blog does. That is not true.

I take what God says about it seriously. I don’t encourage it. I don’t support it. I don’t celebrate it.

I also rarely talk or write about it. This blog isn’t about tabloid journalism. Adultery happens and is sometimes a driving factor in a story, but adultery per se is not a focus of this blog.

UPDATE—An anonymous coward from Team Kimberlin wishes to preach to me:TK20130710aYes, my son is overweight. The problem stems from a side effect of a drug he was taking for serious medical condition. He is now on a different regimen and has lost a significant amount of weight.

The anonymous coward preaches on …
TK20130710bHaughty eyes. Would that be like assuming you’re enough smarter than the average bear so that getting caught is simply bad luck?

A lying tongue. Is that kinda like perjury?

Hands that shed innocent blood. Could that blood come from a man’s leg after it had been blown off by a hidden time bomb?

A heart that devises wicked plans. Like smuggling contraband drugs, or plotting murder of a prosecutor, or lying about selling drugs to a political candidate, or … ?

Feet that make haste to run to evil. Like a recurring habit of stalking one’s critics and enemies?

A witness who breathes out lies. Like a guy who testifies that he did not engage in behavior for which there is clear documentation that he did?

One who sows discord among brothers. Like someone who falsely accuses his wife of mental illness in front of her children?

No, I haven’t forgotten that passage from Proverbs, and I think that it tells us a great deal about God’s sense of justice.

A stone is heavy,
and sand is a burden;
but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.
—Proverbs 27:3

Programming Note


Based on the Gentle Readers’ responses to the poll at the end of Monday’s Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign episode, the Lickspittle Broadcasting System crew will be taking a break for most of the rest of the summer. Blogsmoke, Blognet, and YTJA should back after Labor Day, and if something special happens, there’ll be a special program.

Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign


SOUND: Skype rings twice.

PRODUCER: LBS Production Office.

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Hi! It’ Johnny Atsign.

PRODUCER: Johnny! Where are you?

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Nairobi. I’m just back from a whirlwind tour of several African capitals and some other intriguing places.

PRODUCER: Still working on the [redacted] case?

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Uh, huh. Mostly, I’ve been following the money.

PRODUCER: Money? In Africa? Those are some of the poorest countries in the world.

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Yes and no. Most of the people are poor, but the countries are rich in terms of potential development. There’s a huge competition for control of those resources going on.

PRODUCER: But what does that have to do with your case?

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) I’m just beginning to develop a firm connection, and that’s why I called. It looks like I’ll be here for at least another week or two.

PRODUCER: So more reruns?

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Well, I guess so. Or the show could go on hiatus for a few weeks. Why not let the listeners choose?

PRODUCER: Yeah, why not? OK. We’ll handle it. Meanwhile, stay safe.

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Sure thing. See in a few weeks.

PRODUCER: Bye, Johnny.

JOHNNY: (Telephone filter) Goodbye.

ANNOUNCER: OK, folks, here’s the poll—
